"Shows the modern family enslaved by automatic gadgets in homes and businesses. Family members go through the days with no real person-to-person contact because everything is done automatically. Emphasis is placed on life being more than just a robot existence."
Contains excellent breakfast scene: businessman awakened by alarm clock,
lets wife sleep as he makes own breakfast (cu coffee pot, waffles in
toaster, etc.), businessman backs his late 1950s Cadillac out of driveway;
great LA FREEWAY scenes (oddly, the background audio is a radio show
playing 1920s records; it's truly bizarre to hear a 20s record juxtaposed
with late 1950s LA Freeway traffic). Downtown Los Angeles. CU hand honking
automobile horn. Driver speaks on two-way car radio; pulls into below
ground parking garage. Much more; excellent "slice of life" late 1950s ftg.
